I try to write the same code for Linux (RedHat9; gcc 3.2.2) and reveal the same problem:
In main function were called 

HTProfile_newNoCacheClient(APP_NAME, APP_VERSION);

HTProxy_add( "http", MY_PROXY );
HTNoProxy_add( "localhost", NULL, 0 );

HTAlert_deleteOpcode( HT_A_USER_PW );
HTAlert_add( PromptUsernameAndPassword, HT_A_USER_PW );

HTAlert_setInteractive( YES );


After that, in main, I've tried to connect to some host in Internet (http://www.hotmail.com e.g.) and always received (over traces) "407: Proxy authorization required". 

It looks like application hangs on HTEventList_loop().
There is no call to the callback settled in the main.

When I try to connect to http://localhost (NoProxy) - I receive user/password dialog for my local apache server, that works normally.

So wassup?! Why this happens?
I see I'm not a first person who ask this question.
So does anybody find a solution to this problem already?!

Thanks in advance!
